Oxford United great Cassidy dies

Oxford United

Oxford United are mourning the loss of Nigel Cassidy, one of their great players of the 1970s.

Cassidy died on Monday at the age of 62 after a short illness.

The former Norwich forward joined the U's from Scunthorpe in 1970, and made 132 starts, scoring 34 goals, before moving to Cambridge United in 1974.

Oxford chairman Nick Merry said: "Nigel was one of my first heroes. I was a young lad on the terraces and he was one of the great idols of the time."
